Conditions of Use
Welcome to Amazon Local. Amazon Services Europe and/or its affiliates ("Amazon") provide the Amazon Local website at local.amazon.co.uk (the "Website") and other online features to you subject to the following conditions. If you visit or shop at the Website’s website ("local.amazon.co.uk"), you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully. In addition, when you use any current or future Amazon Local service, you also will be subject to the guidelines and conditions applicable to such service. If these conditions are inconsistent with such guidelines and conditions, such guidelines and conditions will control.
Please review our Privacy Notice and Cookies and Advertising Notice, which also governs your visit to the Website, to understand our practices.
When you visit Amazon Local or send e-mails to us or text us, you are communicating with us electronically. You consent to receive communications from us electronically. We will communicate with you by e-mail, texting or by posting notices on this site. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications that we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
The Website is a local deals website through which you can buy vouchers or deals ("Vouchers") that are redeemable for goods and/or services generally from local businesses in your area (collectively, these are referred to as "Merchants"). The Website is only a platform enabling you to purchase Vouchers directly from Merchants. It is not the seller or issuer of Vouchers that Merchants make available on the Website. As issuer of the Voucher, the Merchant (and not Amazon) is fully responsible for the terms and conditions for each Voucher, and for any and all injuries, illnesses, damages, claims, liabilities and costs suffered by or in respect of you or any other customer caused in whole or in part by the Merchant or its products and services. Contact the Merchant promptly if you have any issues or complaints [related to the redemption of your Voucher] and they should resolve them with you.
Despite the above, if the Merchant fails to resolve any issue with you satisfactorily or you are unhappy with your purchase then please see here for our refund policy.
In addition to the conditions that apply to your use of the Amazon Local website and purchase of Vouchers generally, each Voucher you purchase through the Amazon Local website is subject to certain additional terms between you and the Merchant that apply to that Voucher ("Voucher Terms"). The Voucher Terms specific to a given deal appear in the "What You Need to Know" section of the page where you purchase the Voucher and on the "Additional Standard Voucher Terms" page linked to from the What You Need to Know terms. The complete Voucher Terms (the What You Need to Know terms and the Additional Standard Voucher Terms) are also displayed on the printed Voucher. The applicable Voucher Terms form a contract between you and the Merchant. If you buy a Voucher, you accept those Voucher Terms with the Merchant. Please read them carefully. Amazon is not a party to any of these terms between you and the Merchant. Vouchers are redeemable in only where the Merchant's locations specified on the Voucher exist.
IMPORTANT -- VOUCHER EXPIRATION POLICY: Most Vouchers sold by Merchants will specify an amount that you pay for the Voucher (the "paid value") and an amount in excess of the amount you paid (the "promotional value"). Merchants may specify that the promotional value may expire after a specified date. For Vouchers sold on the Website redeemable for goods or services, Merchants are not permitted to expire the paid value. Merchants are also prohibited from incrementally reducing the paid value of a Vouchers over time due to non-use or otherwise (e.g., through dormancy, service or similar fees).
If you are purchasing a Voucher that is redeemable for an event that is to take place on a specific date (e.g., a concert, art show, cruise, etc.), you must redeem the Voucher before or on the event date since the Voucher will not be redeemable afterwards. Unless otherwise specified in the Voucher Terms, you will not be eligible to receive a refund from the Merchant or use the Voucher if you fail to redeem the Voucher for the stated event date. Event dates are not treated as expiration dates under our Expiration Policy.
For more information on Voucher expiration dates, please see our FAQ page and carefully review the Voucher Terms of each Voucher you purchase to identify the expiration date(s) applicable to that Voucher.
When you buy a Voucher we will send you a purchase confirmation containing a link to the "Your Vouchers" page on the Website where you can print out a copy of your Voucher. To redeem your Voucher, usually you will bring the printed Voucher or display the Voucher on your smartphone to the applicable Merchant. However, specific redemption instructions may be included on the Voucher that will describe other redemption methods (such as entering the Voucher's code into a website or displaying the Voucher to a Merchant via a mobile device). Your Voucher will generally not be usable until after the date you purchased the Voucher, the date from which it is available will be clear in the What You Need to Know section and on the printed voucher. We will maintain the copy of the purchased Voucher on "Your Vouchers" page so that you may print it at any time, unless we issue you a refund.
